Red Dead Redemption 2 May Add VR Support

When "Red Dead Redemption 2" was announced some time ago it was a sure thing it would make piles of cash.

Red Dead Redemption 2 had the largest opening weekend for any entertainment product in history, managing to sell through $725 million in copies over just three days. In other words, they struck gold up in them hills!

But here's the funniest part of all of this: selling the game isn't the big part of where Rockstar will make its money on Red Dead Redemption 2.

Most pre-ordered PlayStation game ever.

But the hugely divisive Workers' Party founder was barred from running because he is serving a 12-year prison sentence. Until his presidential run, Bolsonaro was best known for defending the former military regime and its use of torture.

And upon release day, it broke another record, securing biggest day one game sales ever on PlayStation Network, and continued to break the record for biggest first three day sales too. It also generated the highest day one sales and highest sales for the first three days on the market in PlayStation Network history.

Obviously, a total like that wasn't as hard to reach as it would be for a movie like AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR, with the average ticket costing between $10-15.

Meanwhile, Red Dead has had to compete with some of the biggest gaming franchises, including Call of Duty and Mario Party, as more and more AAA titles are released as developers look to drum up interest ahead of the busy Christmas period.

Told across the deepest and most expansive Rockstar world to date, Red Dead Redemption 2 is Rockstar's first game built from the ground up for new generation hardware, and seamlessly blends gameplay and storytelling in a completely new way to deliver the experience of living as an outlaw in a notorious gang.
